Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and lessen the produced load drastically. Every time a page on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent option for any website that lures lots of viewers, as it will make it really fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your web hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a resource-consuming website with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to speed up any script-powered site, including those that are based on famous web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as people access your Internet site, so you will detect the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for multiple sites or for an extremely popular Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will enable you to enhance the speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to improve the performance of your server.
